About My Practice
I have a B.S. in Biology from the University of Santa Clara, an M.P.A. from George Washington University. My Ph.D. is from the University of Texas.
I specialize in the diagnosis and medication management of mood, anxiety, and eating disorders. I recognize the importance of a psychiatric work-up to rule out any medical conditions causing or contributing to psychiatric symptoms. My appointments usually consist of an approximately 45-minute initial evaluation followed by medication check-ups every one to six months depending on response to treatment.
